BUT! This artist decided to make it one. Momo Pixel’s Hair Nah is as entertaining as it is real – because having to swat people’s hands from black girl locs is an all too common occurrence. The game does a good job of increasing the intensity of the swaps too, perhaps as a way to trigger both annoyance and catharsis, which are real life feelings when you have to keep shooing hands away from your crown.
Creator Momo says her inspiration was that, “it’s literally happened to every Black girl I’ve met. Even while making this game it happened to me, multiple times.”
“When does it stop? Working on this game was such a breath of fresh air because it’s like, finally! I get to tell you, ‘No, stop touching me. Respect my space,’ before it happens—and in the most fun, chill, hilarious way,” she says.
